SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Jayson Brown drove in two runs with a two-out triple and Brock Myers followed with a two-run homer to help unbeaten Goodlettsville, Tenn., defeat Petaluma, Calif., 9-6 on Sunday at the Little League World Series.

With the score tied 5-5, Brown lunged after a high 1-2 pitch for the clutch hit just past diving first baseman Danny Marzo down the right field line.

Myers then smacked his homer to left. The 12-year-old shortstop raced around the basepaths in delight, arms oustretched as his happy teammates waited for him at the plate.

Tennessee’s outburst overcame Petaluma’s own power surge. California slugged four homers, including Cole Tomei’s blast with two outs in the bottom of the sixth.
